Breakfast starts around 6:30 on Saturday morning, including eggs, sausage (smoked & fresh), bacon & biscuits. Sometimes I even slice a ham. And, of course, lots of COFFEE!

Let me know what time you plan to land the Lear jet so I can have traffic blocked on the highway.

Oh, my, this is WONDERFUL!!! Close to the beginning of the trailer, they showed a stained glass window. It is exactly like one from a church I used to attend! Thanks for this, Made!

I just went online and ordered the movie, the bonus clips, and the T-shirt. Couldn't resist. The kids have earned a movie time, so I think I will show this! Thanks again, Made.

I do plan to add music from her era starting in the 40's. Problem is, she really don't like much music from that time. I actually enjoy it more than her! Lol! She is more into Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, Elton John, well you get the picture! She loves a lot of hip hop music too! Her mp3 player is loaded with it! Sorry but none of that would fit in and I am sure if she saw the video with the 40's music she will like it. Some of the home movies was taken in the 50's and I know she likes some music from that time. It would be comical to see old footage with a hip hop beat!

I cannot thank you enough for sparking this idea! I have so many thoughts going through my mind as to what to do in the video. It will be a great gift. Thanks to you, MerryCarey for getting all this going in the first place! =)

I am glad you enjoyed it. I shed a few unexpected tears and smiled a lot through the whole documentary. It was surprisingly very touching!

Watching the trailer for, They Wore the Red Suit, I can't wait to see it!
